Metadata and Intelligence Reports

The chapter presents metadata for the statistical surveys for Research, Development and Innovation carried out by EKT, as well as intelligence reports on the statistics produced. The reports are compiled and submitted to Eurostat and the OECD using a standardised method and quality indicators so as to be fully aligned with the European Statistical System.

In accordance with European Regulation 995/2012, publication of intelligence reports on R&D statistics occurs in October of every odd year, while the GBAORD indicators for the Community Innovation Survey are published in October of every even year.

R&D and GBAORD metadata are published only if there have been changes in the methodology since the previous year, when the respective statistics are posted.
